166 centimeters is 5 feet and approximately 5.35 inches (rounded from 5.3542 inches). One centimeter is equal to 0.0328 feet, and 1 foot is equal to 12 inches.
To convert from centimeters to feet and inches, multiply the amount of centimeters by the centimeter-to-foot conversion. For example, 74 centimeters is equal to 2.4278 feet. The number before the decimal point is the measurement in feet. In this example, that number is 2. Take the number after the decimal point and multiply it by 12 to find the number of inches (0.4278 x 12 = 5.13 inches). In the example, 74 centimeters is equal to 2 feet and 5.13 inches.
